When I was given the chance to review Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker by Marla Martenson, I was really intrigued. Once I got the book, I could not wait to read it. From the moment I picked it up, I was hooked. I read it through in one day.

Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker shows glimpses of a society where many of us just dream about. Seeing celebrities out and about is nothing unusual. Limos, Botox, designer clothing, and dining at exclusive restaurants are nothing unusual in Beverly Hills.

The stories Marla tells about the matchmaking clients will really have you laughing. I mean, seriously, these guys all want perfect 10’s and the girls all want someone to spend money on them and spoil them rotten. One woman had the gall to insist that her “date” buy her a $1200 purse. Wow, if I had $1200, I could pay my bills and eat for the next month. There was even one woman who purposely got pregnant. Reading all of these stories intertwined with the rest of the goings on in Marla’s life had me buried in the book for the better part of the day.

I absolutely loved this book. It is one of those books that makes you realize that there is a whole other world out there, full of a whole different class of people. The book is well-written and fun. I truly think you will enjoy this book as much as I did.

Since my son was born 4 (almost 5) years ago, I have not read as much as I used to. Since school started this year, I have been able to read a few books. One of these books was Craved by Stephanie Nelson.
